  1. Here’s a few more that get at some interesting aspects of faculty life:
    -Hermanowicz’s “Lives in Science: How Institutions affect Academic Careers” and “The Stars are Not Enough: Scientists-Their Passions and Professions”
    -Becher and Trowler’s “Academic Tribes and Territories”
    -Rhoades “Managed Professionals: Unionized Faculty and Restructuring Academic Labor”
    -Braxton and Bayer’s interesting volumes “Professors Behaving Badly: Faculty Misconduct in Graduate Education.” and “Faculty Misconduct in Collegiate Teaching”
    -Burton R. Clark’s seminal “The Academic Life: Small Worlds, Different Worlds”

    And UCLA’s HERI has a faculty survey they conduct every three years, with a running series of the trends from their survey program.

  2. I really like Lamont’s “How Professors Think”.

  3. I would suggest a witty precursor to Becher and Trawler — Hazard Adams’ “Academic Tribes”. (Don’t you want to read something by an author whose given name is Hazard?)

    For all y’all who are too young to remember real campus unrest, I suggest Robben Wright Flemming’s autobiographical account of leading UW-Madison and U of Michigan in the mid-1960s though the mid-1970s. It is “Tempests into Rainbows: Managing Turbulence”.
